ActionStep: Distribute App From Table

Distribute App From Table - creates and distributes app documents, using data from the table section.

For each row of the table, a new app document is created and assigned to a user from the  designated table column. Values from columns can optionally be passed to the newly created app documents as input parameters, if their names match column aliases.

 

Parameters:

App name (type:text) - a name of app to create

Examples:

=APPNAME

APPNAME

=if(1>10, APPNAME1, APPNAME2) 

Table section (type:text) - a name of table section with users and params.

Column with user (type:text) - alias of a column that holds users’ emails. New app documents will be distributed to these users.

 

Example:

In app instance with a table section named section1,

actionstep-distribute-app-from-table01.png

where column A is aliased USER, column B is aliased YEAR and column C is aliased MONTH, executing Distribute app from table action step with parameters:

App name: TEST1

Table section: section1

Column with user: USER

creates 4 new instances of app TEST1. Each instance is assigned to a user from column A. Assuming that app TEST1 has input parameters YEAR, MONTH and USER, values from columns B, C and A will be passed to them.

Remark: When user ID is in USER column, this user is editor of a distributed app. When User column is empty, user, which is set in workflow action in this app (using "set editors", "add editors"), is the editor. 

Remark: You can't enter user group in USER column
